"The Arden3 Hamlet is fascinating, and every Shakespeare scholar will want to possess it. The editors' approach is attuned to the relativism, pluralism, and skepticism of our time, and it is defended with remarkable thoroughness and intelligence....Thompson and Taylor's introductory material is in line with their treatment of the text...they are concerned to introduce the reader to the multitude of diverse critical approaches and to the variety within the developing theatrical tradition. They do this very well, and their discussion of Hamlet on stage and screen and of its offshoots in drama and fiction fills a notable gap...The full and consistently interesting commentary is also enlivened by snippets of information about performances...Thompson and Taylor have made an innovative and stimulating contribution to the Arden3 series." --Shakespeare Quarterly

"Hamlet...has been given a rebirth of sorts by editors Ann Thompson and Neil Taylor...puts the final pieces of the "puzzle of Hamlet" into place by publishing...updated versions of both the First Quarto and First Folio editions of the play. This wonderful ternion gives the serious students of Hamlet everything they need to delve deeply into the Dane. The textual annotations are extensive and worth the price of the book alone. None of the material is duplicated from the Hamlet: Arden Third Series, so this is all new commentary from two of the brightest minds in the world of Shakespeare... Delivers the quality you've come to expect from Arden." --PlayShakespeare.com
